This is summer. Breakfast with friends.
Today it was peaches, plums, nectarines, and strawberries.
A rusty star I caught last night when it fell out of the sky. I hung it on my little oak out back.
I cut this stencil of myself from a photo. I used a Sharpie to color in dark areas so I knew where to cut. Halfway through I almost gave up because I just wasn't seeing myself in all the cut out areas. I'm endlessly fascinated with the way blocks of light and shadow combine to make a recognizable image. After I sprayed, it was like magic. Wow. It's REALLY me. Cool. Will keep using this Sharpie method.
This is from last week.
Visiting Judy's BLOG always makes me happy. I love reading her garden & art stories. And yesterday a stencil portrait. What more could a person want?
Suzanne sent me THIS link to street art & stenciling in Romania. Loads of stenciling and street art to absorb here.
I found THIS journal on Flicker. You may want to have a look too.
I know I've taken you here before, but aren't THESE paintings b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l? I keep going back again and again to look at them.
